Welcome to the first edition of our weekly K-pop Chart, bringing you the Top 40 songs and albums, in the UK.

The chart is based on real numbers and solid facts, using a simple combination of complex formulae to find out the best of the best in the UK for K-Pop. Similar to the Korean charts, the UK K-Pop Chart uses sales numbers, votes from the fans and broadcast exposure, to calculate automatically without bias, the Top 40 K-Pop singles and albums in the UK.

This weeks chart does not include votes, however over the next few days we will be releasing polls to help determine next weeks charts!

So without further ado, the first UKP K-pop Top 40 songs…

Some fan favourites were obviously expected, but we were also surprised by the low sales numbers of some of the big headline groups who recently made a comeback… which meant that some of them didn’t even make the Top 40!

And proving that we Brits are a little different from the Koreans and Americans, we really do love the classic K-Pop, with some great tracks still making up the Top 40 best selling music in K-Pop in the UK months after their first release!

 

What do you think about the rankings?
Did you buy any of the new releases this week?
Why do you think the sales numbers for new releases in the UK are so low?

Want to know how the chart works? Here we explain how!

    I thought B.A.P’s gonna make it. but this chart is quite unexpected 🙂 Roly Poly’s in :))

    • Steve Levine

      Me too! I guess people spazz over them but don’t actually buy their music very much..

  • Jade InkScratchers

    Hah! I feel like the fact that VIXX and IU are on there is probably just down to my own obsessive listening!

    • Kim Tha Thi

      VIXX are doing really well for a rookie group!

  • Teddy Nguyen

    No 2ne1 really surprised me 🙁

  • ha thu

    I don’t know that Cube’s artists are popular in UK

  • TOKKI

    I think there isn’t that many sm artists on the list because people prefer to buy the physical CD’s

  • KeKeKe

    Ke ke ke what is this shit? Muhahaha

  • Catherine Seung

    WOW so good !! I Totally approve with this chart !!!!
    I must have the same taste as English people ! lol
    It’s the first time I see quality music on top ! usually in korea it is based on company or popularity… with their strange voting system.. sad right ?
    OH I love also Ice cream&bubblepop (Hyuna) even if it is “old” song, I still enjoy it more than new ones, and I’m glad to see that i’m not alone ! ^-^
    Beast new album is absolutely gorgeous ! i’m glad it is n°1 here since they don’t have enough recognition in korea.

    UKchart Rocks !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    (from a girl who likes only good kpop songs :p )
